Updating virus definition files

However, one high-profile example, the "Wanna Cry worm", traveled automatically between computers without user interaction.

Starting from around 2012 the use of ransomware scams has grown internationally.

Even if the e-money was previously encrypted by the user, it is of no use to the user if it gets encrypted by a cryptovirus". A, Archiveus, Krotten, Cryzip, and May Archive began utilizing more sophisticated RSA encryption schemes, with ever-increasing key-sizes. AG, which was detected in June 2006, was encrypted with a 660-bit RSA public key.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim's data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid.

While some simple ransomware may lock the system in a way which is not difficult for a knowledgeable person to reverse, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion, in which it encrypts the victim's files, making them inaccessible, and demands a ransom payment to decrypt them.

Payloads may display a fake warning purportedly by an entity such as a law enforcement agency, falsely claiming that the system has been used for illegal activities, contains content such as pornography and "pirated" media.

Payment is virtually always the goal, and the victim is coerced into paying for the ransomware to be removed—which may or may not actually occur—either by supplying a program that can decrypt the files, or by sending an unlock code that undoes the payload's changes.
